Forest fires also release gaseous hydrocarbons and nitrogen oxides that forms ground level ozone. All these pollutants released into the air have a long-lasting impact on air quality and our health. So how can you remove the haze in your indoor environment?Take a breath Air quality Air cleaners and air purifiers
Not all people who purchase our products are experts in air filtration and they shouldn’t have to be either. The purpose of Camfil City is to give everyone a chance to learn the basics of what our clean air solutions can do for them.Virus Contamination Control Energy and Power Systems Take a breath Innovation Technology and Research Case Studies Air quality Standard and regulations Air cleaners and air purifiers Electronics and optics Manufacturing and Machinery Food and beverage Life science and healthcare Commercial and Public buildings Sustainability Education and Experience
Camfil is an official sponsor of the Swedish pavilion by providing advanced clean air solutions that ensure better indoor air quality for visitors. EXPO 2020 in Dubai has started on October 1st, 2021 and will conclude on March 31st, 2022.
Indoors, we are exposed to a host of particles and contaminants that directly impact our health. If the supply air is not filtered efficiently, you risk adding significant numbers of harmful particles to the indoor air.
Camfil is in the vanguard of a growing international movement to reduce the negative health effects of polluted air. As a leader in clean air solutions, we actively inform and educate customers, decision-makers, and the general public about threatening air pollutants and the tangible benefits of effective air filtration and high indoor air quality.
Two striking facts perfectly illustrate why we need to place air quality at the top of the environmental and human health agenda. First, the quality of the air we breathe has a huge impact on our health and wellbeing; globally, air pollution is the leading environmental cause of shortened life, contributing to the equivalent of 5% of all deaths worldwide. Second, each of us inhales more than 25 million particles with every breath we take; the more contaminants we ingest, the greater the chance of sickness and ill-health.
St James Hospital Prevents Aspergillus. Healthcare facilities must maintain the highest levels of cleanliness to promote health and healing. Camfil provides air cleaners for these environments. St. James Hospitaal in Dublin used Camfil for Aspergillus prevention.
A Life Cycle Costing (LCC) analysis proved the Camfil Durafil filter operated at a 24% lower energy cost per year than the Viledon T-60. The Camfil product would save the customer $14 per filter per year versus the alternative.
Chris Ecob, our IAQ expert, introduces the new ISO 16890 standard for testing and classification of air filters and offers interesting perspectives on the benefits for specifiers and users of filters.
Ambient air quality has improved considerably in the last few decades by a range of measures. However, there is convincing evidence that current levels of air pollution still pose a considerable risk to human health.
This standard provides the first opportunity for global harmonisation as it proceeds to replace the two existing localised standards; ASHRAE 52.2 which is dominant in USA and EN779:2012 which is dominant in Europe.
Humans eat 1kg of food each day, drink 2,5 kg of fluids and breathe more than 15kg of air per day. We take care about the food we eat and the water that we drink, but rarely do we consider the air we breath. Find out more with our Take A Breath infographics.
Air pollution is not a new problem. The London smog of 1952 killed an estimated 12,000 people, and in response to it, a Clean Air Act was passed in the UK to combat air pollution. View our infographic to learn more about the risks.
We all know that air pollution is bad for human health. A much less known fact is that new research indicates that the smallest particles in the air are the most dangerous.
